Set in the middle of the 18th Century, and based on real life characters, PLUNKETT AND MACLEANE is the story of two notorious highwaymen. An unlikely couple from different ends of the social spectrum, they enter a Gentlemanıs Agreement. With Plunkettıs (Robert Carlyle) brains and know-how, and Macleaneıs (Jonny Lee Miller) social connections, they infiltrate wealthy society. Macleane gathers information and together they hold up the coaches of the aristocracy. They rob the rich and line their pockets for Plunkett to fulfil his dream and travel to America, and for Macleane, to sustain his high cost of living.
